[F3] Round 03 : Austrian GP : Spielberg (14-May)
« on: May 09, 2017, 05:28:12 pm »
Formula 3 : Season 17 : Round 03
Austrian Grand Prix, Red Bull Ring, Spielberg


Race Preview

Last week, under lights at Bahrain, the F3 grid treated us to a thrilling race. With battles up and down the field, ups and downs for all drivers, and some stunning overtakes, that race will live long in the memory for some. Most notably for pzalanHUN who managed to get his first F3 victory, ahead of ontothepodium and ashbest. This time out we are visiting the track with the shortest lap time on the current F1 calendar, The Red Bull Ring. Dramatic elevation changes and super-fast sweeping curves made it a real drivers' circuit and the small run-off areas and a narrow pit straight made it a traditionally dangerous circuit. Tune into zebra and jake's channels to see the action live this Sunday.



Track Layout




Last Season's Result:

In order to find the last race here at Austria, we have to go all the way back to the second season on F1 2015. Back then only 1 of the current grid raced in F3 so we have to podiums for both F3, and (where more of the current grid raced) F4.

1. ChristopherGore / ZimmerFrameHero
2. Craig / Tamworthfox
3. Macphee / RDO

Q: 12th - Lap was alright to be honest, second of the SS runners.

R: 7th - A solid showing in my opinion, the start was really good fun but unfortunately my attempts at one stopping were wasted as I was still 3 or 4 laps short. Still, a clean run with no penalties helped me gain two positions at the end. If I'd committed to 2 stopping from the start I reckon I'd have been better off but its impossible to say.

Edit: One thing annoyed me in this race, other than the bits of lag - My phone alarm went off for the better part of it continually and I just couldn't turn it off as I was battling cars :D

Race Report

Race started well for me, I took 8th place by lap 2 after a cautious, but opportunistic lap 1. I almost hit Fraggle when he pitted on the end of lap 2 but luckily I was switched on and avoided incident, so that was 7th by lap 3 on my fresh SS tyres. I was
on the back of Bacho on lap 3, and towards the end he broke suddenly near the end of the lap and I had to take avoiding
action, relegating me to 8th. People pitted at the end of lap 4 and that put me up to 6th, but something weird happened  at the hairpin, Ontothepodium must have hit the car ahead, this left me with nowhere to go and I hit his rear, not spinning him but shifting him off to the side. I got ahead of him but stim got past me whilst this went on, so nothing was gained on my part really.

Lap 6 and I was 3rd after more pitstops. Down at the 3rd real corner I overtook Stim for 2nd after he went deep trying to pass Bacho. I was lining up Bacho for a pass but he pitted then, handing me the lead. Lap 9 saw me defending from RDO, and then on the start of lap 10 RDO got alongside into t1 and I conceded the place, as he was quicker on his softs than me on my worn SS. I decided to try and hold off the cars behind as much as I could so he could get a gap to the cars behind me. I pitted on lap 12 for Softs and hoped to get to the end. I came out 11th, ahead of Stim still who had tried to undercut me by pitting on lap 11. But my need to save the tyres was costing me time and by lap 16 stim had passed, along with Tizoq. I remained p11 by this point.

On lap 19 I passed stim for 9th place after he made a mistake into the last turn, he got back alongside down the second straight and into the hairpin, so I tried to stick it around the outside of the hairpin and some how he lost a place to the car behind, I don't know if that's because he hit me or he went to tight into the corner but yeah, I kept the place.

After that, until lap 30 I was just battling the eventual leaders of the race, Unomi and Bacho. Fraggle also passed on lap 28. At this stage of my race I was desperately trying to save tyres as much as possible but it just wasn't going to happen, so I cut my losses and pitted for US.

The last 6 laps were uneventful, I had some real pace for the first 3 laps but by then Yarhamms SS tyres were probably fresher than mine as he had pitted only a couple of laps before me. So I settled for 9th and tried to keep within 3 seconds of yarhamm to take his position when a penalty was applied to him. I wasn't told about it, I just suspected most people would have one. I got 9th on track but 7th after penalties.

As I said in my summary, a decent showing especially when I'd practised less than normal and am unfamiliar with the track. Looking forward to next weekend now, Monaco has real potential of a good haul of points if I can keep clear of incidents. Either way it will be fun.
